Land of the Midnight Sun

A shout out to the people

In the land of the midnight sun

Who place your huts on frozen lakes

Scoring lunch and hours of fun

Like me you love your snow machines

The kind we ride on trails

Or racing up the mountains

Where we tumble if we fail

A wave to all the hikers

Who walk the trails unknown

Enjoying picture perfect afternoons

In the land that we call home

Hail to all the hunters

Who bow before their kill

Giving thanks for this year’s bounty

To the one whose heart’s now still

A nod to the adventurers

Who lust for all things wild

The never ending summer days

A perk for us and every child

A prayer for all the people

Who live where magic’s spun

God bless the hearts forever tied

To the land of the midnight sun

lyne About the Author

I live and write in Fairbanks, a place where in winter, temperatures sometimes hit -60° and darkness is a daily companion for months.  It can and does play tricks on the mind.  Throw in an independent, willful woman with enough relationship blunders and baggage to sink a ship, and presto, words begin to spill all over anything that can be written on. My poetry is all about telling you a story… my story, written in rhyme.  It’s my gift to you, and to the Universe.
